At just shy of £2400, the Vitus Dominer is one of the most affordable DH bikes on the market and competes with the aluminium YT Tues and the Norco Aurum. Does a bike at this price have what it takes and are there any compromises?
We’ve been impressed with the designs from Vitus, and over the last few years they’ve earned slots in our yearly Dirt 100 picks. The Vitus Escarpe Pro trail bike scored a place in 2016 and the longer travel Sommet was a pick in the 2017 Dirt 100. With a solid spec, good sizing and an engaging ride quality, the Vitus brand seems to offer a lot for the money. So how does their Dominer DH bike shape up?
